FRED CLARK Minister of the United Presbyterian Church, Milroy. By the time this gets into print the Easter Season will be over, insofar as the time period is con cerned. Those of us who were present at the services of the Church saw and heard the special emphasis that was placed on the culmination of our Lord’s experience on earth. Some of us honored the risen Lord by special attention to dress, new attire being worn on Easter Sunday. Special music was played and the singing of hymns pertinent to Easter were all the order of the day. Well, all this was very good and all in keeping with the customs and requirements of the season. However, this very pertinent question might well be asked — “Is this all there should be to Easter?” Our Lord did not tell us to celebrate His resurrection, but He did tell us to celebrate His death. We remember a death, but we do not celebrate it. The resurrection of our Lord, however, was such a stupendous thing that we cannot help being joyful about it each time the Easter season recurs. Those events in Christ’s life that we celebrate have a significance far •oeyond our mere remembrance of them. Events like his birth, his death and resurrection all have a vital meaning for us. They are integral parts of our spiritual life. If Jesus still slept under the Syrian stars things would not be as well with us today. If Jesus had not been born life in the world would not be as it now is. If Jesus had balked at the cross the story of our redemption would not have been nearly as romantic — in fact there would have been no story of redemption at all. In the trio of His birth, death, and resurrection, the only one of these that was exclusively human was His death. Life went from him under the impact of something that would have killed any one of us. His birth was not exclusively human for the preliminaries preceding His birth were not as those of any other human, and in His resurrection He is entirely outside our class. We have no reason to believe that we shall come back to life on earth even for as short a time as He did. So Easter is like all other events we celebrate in Christ’s life — it has a meaning that goes far beyond the month of March or April. It is just as timely to talk about Christ’s birthday in August as it is in December, and it is not unseasonable to wax eloquent about Ilis resurrection in January. The celebration of such events in Christ’s life as his birth, death, resurrection, and ascension are pertinent to particular times of the year, but the things they mean for us are as eternal as God Himself.
